Buch: A Long Way Down, 2005 by Nick Hornby, Viking
From Publishers Weekly: This is a brave and absorbing book. It's a thrill to watch a writer as talented
as Hornby take on the grimmest of subjects without flinching, and somehow make it funny and surprising
at the same time. And if the characters occasionally seem a little more eloquent or self-aware than
they have a right to be, or if the novel turns just the tiniest bit sentimental at the end, all you
can really fault Hornby for is an act of excessive generosity, an authorial embrace bestowed upon some
characters who are sorely in need of a hug.
